This is “The OG” - This logo is the epitome of my life. At the young age of about 5 years old, I started riding dirt bikes. In the winter time we would go camping in the desert. We hopped in an old Ford pick up, with a camper, pulling a trailer with our bikes on it. Camping in the desert, riding dirt bikes & having camp fires was one of my favorite things to do as a kid. Now that I’m older, it’s still one of my favorite things to do with my wife & kids.
At around the same age I started water skiing. We jumped in the same old pick up and pulled our little 18’ boat to the lake & spent many weeks camping on the lakes edge. As I got older I got into snowboarding, I’ve always loved being in the mountains, so that was a perfect fit for me. With all that said,
I introduce to you “The OG” - This is “Life Out There”
We live in the best country in the world. This logo is an early 4th of July release, plus with what’s going on in this crazy world we live in right now, it was inevitable that we release this now. I am proud to be an American . I’m proud to show support and proud to rock the bold stripes & brightest of stars. I would personally like to thank all the men & women (past and present) who have served our country. Y’all are the true hero’s of this beautiful country we live in & the sole reason that we’re
“The Land of the Free / Because of the Brave” -
I introduce to you
As a young teen, I literally lived at the beach during summer vacations. Surfing, boogie boarding & body surfing. We would jump on a bus, to get to the beach, real early in the morning - then take the bus back home at the end of the day. This was pretty much a daily ritual during the summertime. Little did I know it, but my wife was the same way when it came to the beach.
She would go to the beach with her friends - tanning & riding beach cruisers on the strand. Some years later when we started dating, we would occasionally drive down to the beach and hang out & ride bikes on the strand. Huntington Beach is a very special place to both of us. This logo is a tribute to my beautiful wife, somewhat signifying where we both came from. The significance of the #25 on the lifeguard tower is - This June 21st, 2022 will be our 25th wedding anniversary. I wouldn’t want to live this “Life Out There” with anyone else on the planet baby.
I love you JJ.
Please wear this one proud!
I give you - “THE JJ”
I have very fond memories of doing a lot of fishing when I was younger. Heading out very early in the morning with my dad & my uncle, freezing our butts off. We did a lot of fishing in the ocean, as well as a bunch of different lakes. I’ll never forget the storytelling, the jokes & especially the practical jokes that were played while we were out there. Great memories for sure. If you knew my uncle, you know he loved his jewelry. I remember him always wearing a necklace with a gold fish hook on it (with a diamond in the middle). I lost my uncle a little over a year ago. So this design is a bit of a tribute to him. I know he would be proud of me and this new journey I’ve embarked on. I also know he would definitely wear this shirt proudly, mainly because of the name - I give you
"A NEW PATH"
This one is real deep y’all. About 5-6 years ago I was in a really dark place, one I never wish to visit again. With every ounce of strength in my body, I “WILL NOT” go back there. I made a commitment to myself, my wife and my kids that will be kept. Unfortunately this is a sickness, that is more apparent then we all may think. I’m releasing this new design for September, which is Suicide Prevention / Awareness Month. Unlike me, I had a close friend of mine commit suicide, just a few short months after I choose “A NEW PATH” ~ It was then when I realized: people do care if your going to show up the next day / there are a lot of people that care about you & love you, more then you could probably ever imagine. I think we all need to communicate a little better & we all need to listen a little more. Don’t be afraid to open up to people, it could save you. I sure wish I had with my buddy, not knowing we were possibly both going through sort of the same things. He had designed an area of his backyard with a big compass, which was the inspiration for this piece. “I sure do miss you brother”
*I will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this tee shirt to ~ The Waymakers Huntington Beach Youth Shelter in honor of my buddy.
I give to you ~
